. john bray bender is a republican strategist and top adviser to rick santorum and robert shrum, democratic strategist and columnist for the daily beast. john, you're on the inside. you know something about this. do you understand how somebody would think that the electorate that's going to participate in 2012, in a general election with barack obama, an african-american, a democrat, and a relatively popular president would create a different electorate than the one you saw say in 2010 or in a primary situation? >> well, i think -- as you know, every poll starts with an assumption. here is who we think is going to show up and vote, therefore that's who we ask the question of. republicans and not just the romney campaign, but republican pollsters all across the country guessed wrong. we didn't see the intensity that there was there for the president, particularly among young voters. we oversampled male white voters. and, you know, you add all that together and you're going to see two, three, four-point differences. plus, the assumption always is that the incumbent is not going to
and you may have heard him because he was the chief backer of the rick santorum super pac. i asked him about taxes and does he think rich people should pay more? he said people the realize how will the people self tax. one ceo of target in phoenix, arizona he has created a museum and has put around 200 million of his own money another friend gave 400 million to a health facility in nebraska, minnesota. bill gates paid 750 million i think to fight aids. we should get rid of touch it -- taxes as much as we can see you can descend have to spend your money rather than the government if you have a certain cause if you want to support it it would be nice if you have the choice for we're headed you'll be taxed in your money taken away it is a question. do believe the government should take your money and spend it for you? forty-one to spend it for you? he went on to say actually it is a surge to tax the productive billionaire guys because of everything they do for us. look at steve jobs, bill gates the government ought to pay them. why they collect money for what they have contributed? he als
romney ended up one on one with rick santorum. iowa where romney appeared to eke out an eight-vote win, a few weeks later santorum was declared the victory and then ohio. >> we are actually looking at recount provisions in the state of ohio. our models have it that close. >> romney's struggle in ohio was in the 2008 op-ed called for a managed bankruptcy but said the government should only guarantee private loans. detroit needs a durn around not a check. the piece was titled let detroit go bankrupt. romney survived the primary gaunt let and let republican super pacs hammer the president on the hair. the campaign spend a lot of time defining romney before romney was able to define obama. he was criticized for taking a week off in july. and for bungling that foreign trip to england, israel and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce the bump he needed. as the focus of the race turned to medicare and the ryan budget. the republican convention was disrupted by weather and a guy talking to an empty chair. and then mid september, the leaked video of mitt rom
because he was the chief backer of the rick santorum super pac. i interviewed him in february and asked about taxes, do you think rich people should pay more taxes? he said people don't realize how well the people self tax. there's a fellow who is ceo of target. recreated a museum of music. he put in $200 million of his own money. i have another friend to give $400 million to a facility in south dakota or someplace like that. look at bill gates to gave $750 million to fight aids. we should get rid of taxes as much as we can because you get to decide how you spend your money rather than the government. if you have a certain cause, an art museum and want to support it it would be nice to have the choice to support it. where we are headed you will be taxed, your money taken away and the government will support it. it is a question. do you believe the government should be taking your money and spending it for you or do you want to spend it for you. you went on to say actually, it is absurd to tax the reproductive billionaire guys because of everything they do for us. if you look at what ste
? the answer will be, the other choices were rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum. at the end of the day, the tea party had spoken. so they nominated mitt romney. >> you heard maher joking that romney is so out of touch he's from outer space. check out this tweet from john kerry. quote, surprised to run into mitt in ohio, a snapshot of some makeshift robot. and actor will farrell stepped up his campaign for obama in a new web video with a list of questionable incentives to encourage people to vote. >> if you agree to vote in this year's election i will personally give you a tattoo. fair warning, i do not know how to draw. i'll do a dance just for you. that was just a taste. if you want the full buffet, you're going to have to vote. if you vote, i'll eat anything you tell me to. garbage, hair, human under -- human toe nails. underpants. i don't care. vote obama. it's a slam dunk. i made you this. it's an owl. who, who. >> convinced? up next, clinton the closer. if president obama wins on tuesday night, he can thank former president bill clinton. he may be the one to push president obama o
he had his back to the wall with rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum, you saw this sort of pattern. the fact checker at the waup has been -- "washington post" has been able to quantify this and he's at newt gingrich levels of honesty. >> oh, my goodness. >> president obama has gotten his share of pinocchios as well, but he's well within the range of normal politics. what romney has been doing here seems to be on a whole other plane, and that is to take something that is known to be false, it's been demonstrated to be false, retreat from it and go right back out and do it again. >> it's brilliant. toure, i mentioned earlier the fear that's been caused by these romney falsehoods about these workers losing their jobs. let's listen to how the president responded to that. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried asking is it true, are our jobs being shipped to china? and the reason they're making these calls is because governor romney has been running an ad that says so. >> how are we supposed to trust a person who wants to
huckabee and rick santorum and others who are thinking about running for president next time. people are going to have to choose up sides and if president obama is leading those negotiations it's going to be an obama deal so for a lot of republicans in congress and around the country they're against it no matter what. they don't care what percentage of the vote he got, how big his mandate is, they'll be against it because it will have revenue in it, new revenue, and they'll be against it. >> rose: because it is -- that vote is influenced by how they perceive the battle they are making for the control of the republican party? >> and they don't like him and anything he stands for and his victory won't change that. and choosing up sides there will tell you a lot about how people are going to approach going forward the next four years of an obama presidency and the fight to redefine the republican party. >> it's going to be -- i mean, regardless of what happens tomorrow i think we come out of this pretty much where we went into it and that's what makes it very disheartening, frankly, as
home, governor. and people like gingrich and santorum were warning about that last year. it's always easy to look back and hindsight is 2020. a lot of them were concerned that a more establishment type like mitt romney would not do that type of aggressive messaging on conservative issues that, for instance, won in 2010. and that have been so successful in various governors races as well. >> two things i want to mention. first, i do want to say i think mitt romney gave it his very best. he worked hard, he worked his heart out. i have got no criticisms of mitt romney. if anybody would want to criticize mitt romney. he was my opponent four years ago when we both ran. you know, i can probably find a way to do it. i'm not going to. i worked hard for him because he was the nominee. i think that's what we do as republicans. once we get a nominee. we close in the ranks and we help him. >> he also learned from campaigns that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this po
of rick santorum. i don't know why he think its is an urgent national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. it is a serious moral position. i think the fact on this issue the country is closely divided, and there is no evidence to suggest that it would disqualify the elected president of the united states but surely we must understand the position. particularly suburban and young women do not want to hear lectures on contraception from old white republicans. we are the women in government party. we see it too often from the leadership in washington a version of big conservatism where the government is peering through the windows into matters of sexual orientation, lifestyle choices and contraception. when you have people talking about the individual mandate and screaming about tyrany and we are on 1,000 years of darkness. at the same time we are voting in people in state legislatures that are mandating -- it does not add up or make sense and it is being rejected and it will continue to be rejected across the country. if you look at
it was april 10th when rick santorum dropped out, they decided focus, discipline, we are going to in i day or dollar spent -- any day or dollar spent talking about anything other than obama or the economy was a day or dollar wasted. their view. that's almost word for word quote from one of their top strategists. when i asked this question back in june. and so they focused just entirely up until just before the convention on banging on economy and obama when the thing about it is, yes, to a certain extent when you have an incumbent president running for election, yes, it is a referendum on the incumbent. and it is a referendum in part on the economy and the state of the economy. but the thing about it is you've got to define your own candidate in a way n a positive way -- in a positive way, biographical advertising, testimonial advertising, you have to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual, someone that, i mean, think of the boy scout oath. that's the general idea. i'm sure girl scouts have the same, something like that. that's the general thing you want to get across
. rick santorum, a former pennsylvania senator, writes -- today."n "usa as for another republican voice, marco rubio. this is a store in "politico" this morning. -- a story. there's a little of what the senator had to say. [video clip] >> we start with a very simple motion. a way to turn our economy around is not by making rich people poor. it's by making poor people richer. that's the way to move our country forward. [cheers and applause] and it starts with economic growth. what can government do to the federal level to get the economy growing again? look to your governor in iowa. how about balancing the budget and dealing with your? so you don't have one? [applause] how about tax rates that generate the revenue government needs but are not so unpredictable or high that people are afraid to invest in your economy moving forward? how about the regulatory process that takes into account the costs of regulation and not just theoretical benefits of regulation? an investment in energy policy, not just energy politics? host: watched the whole speech at our website c-span.org. this year is th
have no idea how any other american useles birth control with the acception of rick santorum. and i don't know why he wants to talk about it or why he thinks it's a national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. the prolife position is a serious moral position and i think the fact that on this issue the country is closely divided and there is no toveed suggest that being prolife is a disqualifier to being elected president of the united states. but surely we must understand the difference that being prolife doesn't default you into anti-contraception and women in this country particularly young women don't want to here contraception leckchures from white over 50,. we are the limited government party. and we see too often from the leadership in washington a version of big government conservatism where the government is peering through the window into matters of sexual orientation, into life style choices and issues like continue tra acception. so there is an intellectle disdense when people are talking about tyranny and we stand on the precipic
. the trajectory has been incredible. >> mitt romney is a guy rick santorum said could never get elected. megyn: she says he had so much confidence he thought whatever he did would work. we'll pick it up after the break. emblematic of the problems the president faced these last four years. >> it's a powerful metaphor. there is a great story there, too, as well in terms of the government's response. if this had been a republican president and people on staten island were screaming into the cameras please help us, we have no food, they are running the new york city marathon. there is a real controversy there as well. many people are saying we are katrina. of course, obama gets a pass because it's a few days before the election. all the promises going back to a fundamental promise that his chairperson of the economic council said 5.6% unemployment after the stimulus. it went up to 7.9% today. the promises are broken. the expectations have not been met and this is a failed presidency and i'm hoping next week i'll have a big smile on my face. megyn: you talk about the unemployment promises and cutti
popularity has taingd. the trajectory has been incredible. >> mitt romney is a guy rick santorum said could never get elected. megyn: she says he had so much confidence he thought whatever he did would work. we'll pick it up after the break. >> if we are willing to work for it and fight for it and believe in it, then i am absolutely certain that generations from now we'll be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick, and jobs to the jobless, this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal. megyn: alan colmes and mike gallagher. peggy noonan writes maybe in the wake of hurricane sandy people will be feeling angst and leaning towards the status quo or maybe they will feel he failed to slow the ocean's rise. there is a question about whether that promise, that rhetoric and what happened with hurricane sandy with the oceans is somehow h emblematic of the problems the president faced these last four years. >> it's a powerful metaphor. there is a great story there, too, as well in terms o
. martha roy. rick santorum. aaron shock. jim tallant. john thune. pat tome. scott walker. mike turner. steve chabis. from the great state of ohio, mary tyalor. mary taylor. >> four more years! four more years! >> are we ready to do everything we can in ohio 2 elective mitt romney and paul ryan, the next president and vice president of the united states? [cheers and applause] as always, a great crowd of the intro west chester, ohio. this is outstanding. i have done a lot of great rallies over the last couple of weeks. i have three simple reasons. i would like to go through them quickly with you. president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state to back on track. we know that is not true. it is the work governor kasich and i have done with to balance the budget and get our state back on track. but we did not raise taxes. we cut taxes. here is my second reason. this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18 years old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago his friends were gathering at our house. i decided
. they supported rick santorum over mitt romney. many uneasy over romney's moderate past on issues like abortion and his mormon faith. >> i think it concerns anybody who considers themselves an evangelical christian. >> reporter: but that was then. >> you previously said that the romney campaign snubbed social conservatives. >> i think he has proved himself that he has tried to make that outreach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives. he has done a good job here in iowa. >> reporter: while iowan's evangelical voters seem to be moving into mitt romney's camp, here in traditionally democratic dubuque, the president may face more of a challenge. the catholic voters we spoke with here are split over issues like abortion, funding for contraception, and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues which many catholics, most catholics, hold dear and essential to their faith, but then there's this belief that remains that the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i think it comes down to that tension. >> reporter: how big a role does your catholic
of rick santorum and we can do that and that is a natural inclination of evangelicals. but we want someone who shares our values in terms of the policies that will recognize religious freedom and importance of the family and the difference between the inner city families and he made some comment that the white family has more access to government support. what strengthens the opportunities the children have is that family unit, that mom and dad that they grow up. unfortunately what we have seen in the inner city, now at a point where 70% of our children in the inner city are being raised by single parents. they are missing that influence in most cases of a father. and that's important. important both in the life of a girl and of a boy. for a young man, they learn how to control their masculinity and socialization skills from their father and that daughter from the father learns that sense of self-worth. it is one of the main factors in causing young girls to delay sexual activity until marriage because they have the acceptance of a father. the absence is the exact opposite. you don't have
time and a lot of money. the governor didn't win a lot of caucuses it went to senator santorum. the economy is very important here, like the rest of the country. immigration and also energy, but, yes, they both spent quite a bit of time here. the president, in fact, mete made 13 stops here, the most visits of any president, ever, making it here in colorado. >> i wonder, alicia, if there is a reason for that. if there is anything the president learned that filtered into his strategy for his 2012 run. did anything come from colorado? >> actually, this is something that ax a, one of the president's advisers talked about, early on in the run up to the re-election. this is early on, part of the strategy, as part of the 2012 run, modeled after the 2010 senate race, won by democrat michael bennett. senator ben bennett wofs know of the a handful of democrats who faired well on the election day, 2 years ago. he won by 29,000 votes when he beat the favorite, ken buck. the strategy by bennett, target hispanics, target scbem frame your opponent as an extremist. that's something that the pr
. you can't tell me that rick santorum or newt gingrich, as much as i like them, would have donnie better. okay? romney was always i'm a redskins fan, a washington redskins fan. he is like donovan mcnabb. he is not the quartback of the future. rg3 is, right? i think it's the same way with the republicans. mitt romneying, they were hoping he could get them a win, but he was never the candidate of the future, and i think that if you look at not just marco rubio, but bobby jindahl, and i would have said chris christie two weeks ago, but today i probably won't. there are strong candidates out there, young republicans, who can appeal to a much wider audience and be inspiring and inspirational. >> i want to bring you into the conversation here. first of all, let's just lay out what things have looked like for the last eight years, and president bush in covering him, he really did a lot of outreach with the hispanic -- 31% latino vote, and mitt romney 27%. that was compared to president obama's 71% here, so matt talks about marco rubio and some of the others in the party. is that the way
. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was a republican nominee for pr
herman cain and rick santorum. in retrospect, it is striking me as a type of ridiculousness. >> i think for the issues around sexual orientation, we have the last four years of the current president where these issues have already become almost regular issues in american households because the president and his administration were doing things that actually highlighted areas and our concerns from everything from domestic don't tell, even if people were thinking weren't thinking about gender identity, all of a sudden, this becomes, you know, commonplace to hear something about things like that or even a little bit about the issue of hate crimes and legislation back to the beginning of the administration. let's not forget that the president comes out personally and supports the freedom to marry for same-sex couples just a few months back. so for us, it makes sense but it's there. what's interesting about it is that the words were never spoken. there were a lot of discussions around it. are you upset that, you know, the word gay or, you know, it was already in the fabric of the household.
santorum was the candidate, and michele bachmann as well. it was just so up and down, you know, that's part of the way the democrat system works going state by state and fight for it. there's benefit to that. every voter in new hampshire got a perm visit with mitt romney, michele bachmann, herman cain, it forces you to do that, but in a primary, you wouldn't have the opportunity as a voter or the candidates wouldn't have that challenge to have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there's good and bad parts of it, but, yeah, it does create some challenges, no question. >> on the super packs on the republican side spent over $700 million, something like that, and it looks like, you know, aachieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted so where does that leave that system, and what does that say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome. with that much money with no return on it. >> a couple thoughts, one, you help me op this because there's an editorial about it or somebody wrote it for him, he's too important to write his own anymore. [laughter]
gingrich was going to be our candidate. rick santorum was thought to be our candidate i did not want to leave out michele bachmann terry but it was up and down. we go state-by-state in have to fight for it. there is some benefit for that. it forces you to do that. in national primary, he would not have that opportunity. there are some good and bad parts of it but yeah, it does chris and challenges. >> the super pacs on the republican side probably spent over $700 million. it looks like they achieved almost nothing. in terms of electing candidates they targeted. what does it say about anything? >> he bowed and editorial about it. he is way too important, rupert, to write his own editorials and margaret [laughter] [laughter] there's a lot of discussion now about -- just for you to understand, the context of this question, it is not the other side without spending a loss too. is that accurate? >> the unions may better advantage of a lot of the super pac money, channeling it into other things. the other issue was obama's advertising. and they made which nobody responded to it. >> it prob
with rick santorum for supremacy in that realm. rand paul, perhaps. the tea party was found by the ron and rand paul real conservatives, the guys who were disgusted at how george w. bush spent money before it devolved into people blaming obama for what bush did. then you'll have the moderates. i think jeb bush will be the leader in. guy who will say i'm the electable moderate. we tried going to the right wing way. ronald reagan wouldn't fit in with them. chris christie of course will be a part of that camp. >> immigration is going to be a real good test case. you'll see this divide between that brand of moderate republicans saying that immigration is an economic issue. that we need to bring in people with the skills that america needs to power the economy and on the other side, folks like steve king and michele bachmann who use those emotional appeals of they'll take your jobs, they're from another country and so on and so forth. how that plays out will be key to what the party becomes. >> john: you can't wi
. >>> who is in, who is out? former senator rick santorum is not counting himself out for the run for president. >> we're a long way. i'm focused now on trying to stay involve in the fray and do the right thing on capitol hill and also that this debate in the republican party about what future of the part and where we're going to go, that we're going to be active and engaged and stick to american's founding principles. >> it's not a yes and it's not a no. >>> one candidate running again, governor chris christie filled out paperwork, gearing up to campaign for a second terp as governor. >> the public needs to know that i'm in this for the long haul. that the person who has helped to lead them through the initial crisis wants to be here to lead them through rebuilding and restoration of our state. it would be wrong for me to leave now. i don't want to leave now. we have a job to do. >> polls out in the past 24 ors show christie's approval rating is skyrocketing thanks to his response to superstorm sandy. >>> three top cabinet spots up for grabs. who is in, who is out? pi bill clinto
decided by eight votes between rick santorum and mitt romney and then oh, by the way the results flipped two weeks later, i've always worried that that was foreshadowing this nightmare scenario. >> as you talk to us, chuck, i want to note that vice president biden is waiting in line to vote in delaware this morning. we'll keep an eye on that as you and i continue to talk. >> reporter: speaking of vice president biden. under this scenario and people are wondering if you don't get to 270, this would go to the house, so the house would elect the president. the senate would elect the vice president, so under this scenario your most likely outcome romney/biden. >> then we'll know we're in an alternate reality. chuck, let's move on to florida. if it came down to florida being the deciding state, how might that play how the? >> well, here's the issue with florida right now, and this has to do with election challenges, and i'll just put it here to center it up a little bit. there were two big issues in the state of florida this year that came up. one is in palm beach county where 60,000 absentee
minted front-runner rick perry. >> rick santorum now leads the national polls. >> newt gingrich surges to the top of the gop field. >> campaign in full throttle mode. >> on the attack, the gloves come off and the candidates come out swinging. >> can we drop a little bit of the pious baloney. >> rick, again. >> i'm speaking, i'm speaking. >> contentious gop presidential debate. >> she says you asked her, sir, to enter into an open marriage. would you like to take some time to respond to that. >> i am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that. >> 10,000 bucks. >> i'm not in the betting business. >> okay. >> my 999 plan is a bold solution. >> three agencies of governor when i get there that are gone, commerce, education and -- and let's see. oops. >> the newest claim of sexual misconduct against herman cain. >> i am suspending the campaign. >> suspending the campaign. >> i have decided to stand aside. >> a better america begins tonight. >> mitt romney wanted to shake up his candidacy, and he has. >> next vice president of the united states, paul ryan. >> we
to be our candidate. newt gingrich was going to be our candidate. rick santorum was going to be our candidate. i don't want to leave out michele bachmann. i think she was a our can date for a while too. it was up and down. that's, part of the way our system works our democratic system works as we go state by state and fight for it. there is some benefit for that. it forces you to deal with voters. every voter in new hampshire got a personnal visit from michele bachmann, herman cain. in a national primary you wouldn't have the opportunity as voter. more importantly the candidates wouldn't have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there are some good and bad parts of it. it does create some challenges, no question. >> steve schwarzman. >> rob, on, the super pacs on the republican side probably spent over $700 million, something like that. and it looks like, you know, they achieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted. so where does that leave that system? and what does it say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome with that much money
